Abstract

This edited collection explores the background and implementation of the Nordic Barnahus (or 'Children's House') model – recognised as one of the most important reforms related to children who are the victims of crime in the Nordic region. This book discusses both its potential to affect change and the challenges facing it. The model was introduced as a response to a growing recognition of the need for more integrated and child-centred services for children exposed to violence and sexual abuse. In the Barnahus structure, different professions work together to ensure that victimized children receive help and treatment and that their legal rights are met. This original study is organised into four broad themes: child-friendliness, support and treatment; the forensic child investigative interview; children’s rights perspectives; and interagency collaboration and professional autonomy. Each themed section includes in-depth chapters from different Nordic countries, outlining and analysing the practice and outcomes of the collaborative work engaged in by Barnahus from different perspectives. The introductory and concluding chapters offer a comparative lens useful for policy and practice implementation within the Nordic welfare state context and beyond, ensuring this book has global academic and practical appeal.

Abstract

Au cours des années 2000, une série de transformations institutionnelles traversent le champ de l’adolescence : reconnaissance de la notion de handicap psychique, accumulation de réformes dans le cadre de la justice des mineurs, développement de dispositifs d’écoute de la souffrance. C’est dans ce contexte social que se problématise la catégorie d’« adolescents difficiles ». Il s’agit d’une population de jeunes qui, ne rentrant pas de façon suffisamment satisfaisante dans les cases des savoirs et des pratiques du médicosocial, de la protection de l’enfance, de la justice ou du sanitaire, « se font rejeter de partout ». Cette population interstitielle devient alors l’objet spécifique d’un souci collectif, de savoirs cliniques et d’actions publiques. Dans quelles conditions historiques et sociales l’expertise clinique a-t-elle identifié ce problème ? Comment les acteurs de terrain éprouvent ce souci ? Quelles pratiques développent-ils pour le traiter ? À partir d’une recherche documentaire et d’une enquête ethnographique de longue durée, cet ouvrage apporte une contribution à l’anthropologie de la santé mentale en France. Il explore concrètement ce que la psychiatrisation signifie, dans le champ des adolescents difficiles, aux confins de la dangerosité et de la vulnérabilité, des pratiques de sollicitude et de contrainte.

Abstract

Volume 1 "Policy Changes and Challenges" takes as its central theme the ongoing and challenging issues which child protection agencies have to address and the policy and practice initiatives that are developed to try and address these. The volume includes papers on: the relationship between the decline in the rate of ‘unnatural’ deaths and the growth of concern about child abuse in the USA between 1940 and 2005; mandatory reporting; the balance between providing urgent intervention and meeting chronic need; risk and the Public Law Outline in England; the nature and implications of ‘child centred’ policies; the impact of intimate partner and family violence; the intended and unintended consequences of high profile child abuse scandals; developing multi-disciplinary team work in a health setting; and the possibilities of technology-based innovations in prevention programmes.

Abstract

Volume 2 "Issues in Child Welfare" is primarily concerned with how best to respond to maltreatment ‘within’ the family and hence has a range of papers which are much more concerned with the area of policy and practice more traditionally framed in terms of ‘child welfare’ and social work with children and families. It also includes a paper on how to respond to child maltreatment and neglect in a large hospital context.

Abstract

This Special Issue of Children will focus on the migration arc of children from their country of origin through the experience in refugee camps and, finally, to their arrival in in a new home. It will examine the impact experiencing migration as refugees, immigrants or those internally displaced due to war and conflict has on children’s health. Explored topics include adverse health conditions, trauma and mental health, best practice and care coordination. It explores specific populations, such as children with disabilities, unaccompanied minors and child separation at international borders. This Special Issue also includes an examination of new clinical guidelines, the development of new care systems and advocacy for new policies. It also provides a summary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child’s specific mandate to provide for the most vulnerable children in need.
